The Future of Obesity

MedCityNews reports that spending on obesity treatments is diverging in the U.S. and Europe — this due to regulatory quirks rather than efficacy or consumer preference. Kind of disturbing, actually, to see how many "treatments" there now are for obesity, and how much we'll be spending on them in 2019. Conspicuously absent from this graph is a line item for spending on, um, "prevention."
